What novels have you enjoyed reading lately?

Wild, The Mapmaker's Wife, Time of Wonder, Cutting for Stone, The Tiger's Wife, Hummingbird's Daughter, Into the Beautiful North

Please recommend a novel for our group to discuss. Why do you suggest this book?

so sorry, I am drawing a blank. I have just discovered Luis Alberto Urrea, have loved the last 2 books on my "have enjoyed recently" list, and was thrilled to discover he is a prolific writer, so perhaps another of his...his writing is extremely socially relevant, beautifully fluid, politically important, and also very funny at times

What interests you about our group, and what do you hope it will become?

Frankly, I am a single parent, whose very wonderful daughter is finding less and less need for me...I am looking for ways to reinvent my life, ways to connect with other adults, and to enjoy what I already love, one of those things being reading , with some companionship. And the book you have chosen for august is already on my 'request list' at the library, giving me the impression that we may be a match- hooray! Thanks so much. Wendy

Introduction

Nursing is my livelihood, and sometimes, my passion. Swimming is my daily form of exercise, therapy, meditation, and always my passion. I love to hike, as well, and am currently contemplating hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail, 165 miles, in 2013..

What wendy W. is saying about this Meetup Group

stimulating, provocative, intelligent, thoughtful, and cozy. Oh, and welcoming. Thank you!
